Alexander Gutke works within the conceptual and minimalist tradition. Analogue apparatuses such as cameras, film and slide projectors are some of the main components in his art practice. Gutke investigates these technical elements as objects and mechanical devices, and uses them as tools and objects in his works and narrative creating a visual illusionism and a poetic and mystical materialism. Through his works, artist explores whole host of issues, ranging from narrative self-reflexivity, measurement, space, light, shade, darkness and what can be best described as a metaphysical existentialism. A selection of his solo exhibitions was presented at Kunsthaus Baselland (Basel, 2015); Vera Cortês Art Agency (Lisbon, 2015); Kunsthalle Winterthur (2013); Galerija Gregor Podnar (Berlin, 2012); Malmö Konsthall (2012); Museum of Contemporary Art (Detroit, 2009), Culturgest (Oporto, 2009).

Alexandre Farto aka Vhils Gleam #1, 2016 Metal-cased lightbox with neon lights cm Alexandre Farto aka Vhils Collapse 7, 2015 Advertising posters collected from the street, hand carved and laser cut cm Alexandre Farto aka Vhils Alexandre Farto aka Vhils was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1987, where he lives and works. Farto has been interacting visually with the urban environment under the name of Vhils since his days as a prolific graffiti writer in the early 2000s. His groundbreaking carving technique which forms the basis of the Scratching the Surface series and was first presented to the public at the VSP group show in Lisbon in 2007 and at the Cans Festival in London in 2008, has been hailed as one of the most compelling approaches to art created in the street in the last decade. This striking form of visual poetry, showcased around the world in both indoor and outdoor settings, has been described as brutal and complex, yet imbued with a simplicity that speaks to the core of human emotions, expressing the struggle between the aspirations of the iandividual and the demanding, saturated environment of the urban spaces he lives in, highlighting and exposing the sombre dimension that lies behind the current model of development and the material aspirations it encompasses unsustainable, yet inebriating. An avid experimentalist, he has been developing his notion of the aesthetics of vandalism in a plurality of media from stencil painting to wall carving, from pyrotechnic explosions to 3D modelling which have enabled him to expand the boundaries of visual expression. His work is part of institutional and private collections such as: EDP Fondation, Portugal; MACE; Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Elvas, Portugal; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, San Diego, USA; Victoria & Albert Museum, London, United Kingdom; Alfredo Hertzog da Silva, São Paulo, Brazil; Luciana e Luis Antonio Almeida Braga, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Jorge Perez, Miami, USA; Collection Nicolas Laugero Lasserre, Paris France.
